"To the detectives surprise, ADA Alexandra Cabot (guest star Stephanie March) shows up at the crime scene, after three years in the witness protection program."

are they forgetting their own Cabot storylines? cabot came out of witness protection for one SVU episode - if they put her back into protection, she came out again to be the bureau chief on Conviction. Are they actually writing this that the character went back into witness protection after being a bureau chief?

Maybe they're just pretending Conviction didn't happen. Not a bad idea, frankly.

I hope to god they're pretending Conviction didn't happen, because that show was so unrealistic,! Cabot was totally out of character.

The only person in character in that piece of crap was Arthur Branch, who appeared in the first episode in a press conference on TV.

Hope they're doing the right thing.

Dick Wolf has all but said that Conviction should just be left forgotten... and it seems like it's for the better to me, as it was, in fact, quite bad. Trying to retroactively work in Conviction's plotlines into SVU as well would probably have been more trouble than it was worth.

This episode sounds pretty good on paper, actually. I bet Cabot has some unfinished business with Lionel Granger since he was the one who defended the drug dealers who had her shot in 'Loss'.

I love Alex Cabot is back! I prefer her over Casey and, obviously, over Kim...

Law and Order: SUV is my favorite.

I like your blog, very much!!!

I apologize for my "rare-English". I read better than I write. But I like your site, and I needed write something!!!

10Q for this amazing place...

I agree. I think that they should make up for Conviction by a sort of an episode emphasizing the mistakes. It'd be kinda cool

Could someone tell me who was the dedication at the end of the "Lead" episode?
